📒All About My Mother ✍ J. S. Quinn
✏All About My Mother Book Summary : All About My Mother: A Beloved Daughter’s Memoir is the intriguing story of J.S. Quinn, who died in 1997, 25 days before her 19th birthday. This memoir was written by her mother to show that a child’s love can survive death, and it also shows the promise of a life barely begun. Since she passed, J.S. has been witnessing her mother's grieving, right up to the present day. She tells the strategies her mother uses to help cope, including reading, writing, and listening to music. J.S.’s mother was abandoned as a baby in 1946 at a Catholic orphanage in England. J.S. relates the childhood she spent with her three brothers and her single mother, who is of mixed heritage. In the early years, her mother worked three jobs, but still had time to keep her four children busy with activities while pursuing her education to become a teacher. J.S.’s death at 18 took a deep toll on her brothers and her mother, a British teacher currently living in Thailand, who cites her grieving process and why she wrote the book. “It is really an accumulation of short stories, the first of which I wrote in March 2006 as an account of my daughter's last flashes of her life as she was dying. It lifted the gloom on nine years of aching grief. I have had such a blessed life, even with the loss of my daughter. The only obstacle was trying to stay true to my daughter's sentiments and voice.”
📒Mother My Mother ✍ Young Oh
✏Mother My Mother Book Summary : A tent was set up and a triangular table was placed in the middle of the tent. There were one hen and one cock on the table with a big bowl of rice and the smell of burning incense. The bride and the groom in traditional wear stood opposite each other, but the table was placed between them. The usher of the ceremony told the bride to bow to the groom, and in return the groom had to bow in courtesy to the bride. The rite of bowing one after the other would be the peak of the ceremony, and then the reception would be held. Mother and Father became husband and wife right after the wedding ceremony. Then their future was up to them.
📒My Mother S Voice ✍ Adrienne Kertzer
✏My Mother s Voice Book Summary : Named Honor Book of the Year by the Children’s Literature Association Winner: 2003 Canadian Jewish Book Award for scholarship on a Jewish subject Finalist: 2003 Alberta Book Awards Scholarly Book of the Year How do children’s books represent the Holocaust? How do such books negotiate the tension between the desire to protect children, and the commitment to tell children the truth about the world? If Holocaust representations in children’s books respect the narrative conventions of hope and happy endings, how do they differ, if at all, from popular representations intended for adult audiences? And where does innocence lie, if the children’s fable of Roberto Benigni’s Life is Beautiful is marketed for adults, and far more troubling survivor memoirs such as Anita Lobel’s No Pretty Pictures: A Child of War are marketed for children? How should Holocaust Studies integrate discourse about children’s literature into its discussions? In approaching these and other questions, Kertzer uses the lens of children’s literature to problematize the ways in which various adult discourses represent the Holocaust, and continually challenges the conventional belief that children’s literature is the place for easy answers and optimistic lessons.
📒My Mother S Hip ✍ Luise Margolies
✏My Mother s Hip Book Summary : Some 400,000 hip fractures occur every year, the vast majority among the elderly; all too often these fractures are associated with death or severe disability. After her mother's double hip fracture, Luisa Margolies immersed herself in identifying and coordinating the services and professionals needed to provide critical care for an elderly person. She soon realized that the American medical system is ill prepared to deal with the long-term care needs of our graying society. The heart of My Mother's Hip is taken up with the author's day-to-day observations as her mother's condition worsened, then improved only to worsen again, while her father became increasingly anxious and disoriented. As both a devoted daughter and a skilled anthropologist, Margolies vividly renders her interactions with physicians, nurses, hospital workers, nursing home administrators, the Medicare bureaucracy, home care providers, and her parents. In the Lessons chapter that follows each episode, she discusses in a broader context the weighty decisions that adult children must make on their parents' behalf and the emotional toll their responsibility takes. Here she addresses the complex practical issues that commonly arise in such situations: understanding the consequences of hip fracture and its treatment, preparing health care proxies and advanced directives, enabling elders to remain at home, and the heartbreaking dilemma of prolonging life. Like many adult children, Margolies learned her lessons about eldercare in the midst of crises. This book is intended to ease the information-gathering and decision-making processes for others involved in eldercare.

📒In My Mother S House ✍ Kim Chernin
✏In My Mother s House Book Summary : In My Mother’s House depicts a profound, intergenerational struggle between a powerful, politically engaged mother, Rose, and her spiritually inclined poet and writer daughter, Kim. Framing this collision are two other generations. There is Rose’s mother from the shtetl, a broken woman regularly beaten by her husband but the source of the family’s stories. And Kim’s daughter, a second-generation, fully assimilated girl of eight at the time the book begins. Four generations, from the shtetl to an affluent intellectual household in Berkeley, California, the story is a historical record and reckoning between the old activist left and a beginning feminist movement. The double narrative allows Kim to explore the evolving relationship between mother and daughter, who, through their storytelling, are brought to a profound understanding and reconciliation.
📒My Mother S Eyes ✍ Anna Ornstein
✏My Mother s Eyes Book Summary : Anna Ornstein is a Holocaust survivor. After emigrating to the U.S., she seldom spoke of the experiences she suffered while a young girl. Thirty years ago at Seder, her family - children and grandchildren - asked her for a glimpse from her past. In an evocative, understated passage, she shared a bit of the tragedy she saw through the eyes of a child. On every Seder since that day, she has added to this tradition with another chapter.
📒My Mother Has Alzheimer S ✍ Mark V. Jastrzembski
✏My Mother Has Alzheimer s Book Summary : I wrote this as a tribute to my mother, a humble and gently unassuming housewife and mother who loved and understood everything about life and all of its great mysteries. Although Alzheimer’s disease relentlessly and ruthlessly ravaged both her mind and body, her soul remained untouched and pure. This book chronicles her struggles, which certainly impacted the lives of everyone for both the better and the worse. In the end, though, her final lasting lesson was that even in sickness, she still was able to reveal to her loved ones the beauty that surrounds each of us. We learned from her, and for this, we each became better human beings. I wish to share that message of comfort and hope with you, dear reader.
